I wondered whether putting this tea bowl right at the edge of the firebox was a good idea. At some point during a stoke it was knocked into the firebox where I found it after unloading, lying on the grates. Amazingly, after having great hunks of wood tossed onto it, it rings clear! Not a crack. Now I have a new matcha bowl!
